Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school, age 5, no matter their family’s income.
Literacy is a gift that lasts a lifetime.
Dolly’s Imagination Library launched in 1995 in Dolly's hometown community, Sevier County, TN. In 2000, it became available for replication across the United States. In 2006, the program launched in Canada and in the United Kingdom the following year. By 2010, Imagination Library had mailed 25 million books internationally. Audio and Braille books were added in 2011 and in 2013, the program launched in Australia. In February of 2018, Dolly Parton donated her 100,000,000 book to the Library of Congress.
The launch of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is made possible by Scoops and Brew! But we need your support to keep it alive. So make your donation today.
